Our mission is to transform students of Jewish education from learners leaders while building community amongst fellow students. Through student choice and leadership opportunities, we encourage student development and individuation. Our Jewish democratic micro-school model empowers students to be co-creators in their academic, religious, and social environment for the ultimate schooling experience.
Students are most effective when an ever-increasing amount of choice is in their hands.
Our learning designs and badge pursuit provides opportunities for students to fill many roles within the learning process.
For maximum student accountability and real world success, democracy within a community of students is essential.
Our student governing system and goal setting ensures students are integrating democracy in the classroom with clear directives in place.
Interdisciplinary, project, and passion based learning increases learning opportunities and is best for long term acquisition of rote skills.
Learning designs and badge system encompass all three types of learning.
Real-world feedback, self-evaluation, and peer oversight are the most useful assessment data.
Before students advance to the next level, they pass through each of these points for maximum effect.
Student buy-in requires increased access to information and the space to challenge previously held beliefs and assumptions.
Via Socratic Discussions and Launch Landings, students have regular opportunities to challenge themselves and others while developing their beliefs along the way.
Students learn most effectively from participatory collaboration, calling on assistance when they require it.
Refer to Learning Designs and Badges.
